“The Talk’s” official Twitter posted the announcement and said, “JUST ANNOUNCED! #TheTalk has been officially renewed for another year on @CBS returning for a 12th season in 2021-2022! More fun, more topics, more Talk!”
According to Page Six, CBS has yet to reveal whether the current clique of co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Carrie Ann Inaba, Amanda Kloots, and Elaine Welteroth are all returning or if a replacement for Osbourne would be named.
The talk show was shaken with controversy earlier this year after Osbourne and Underwood got into a heated on-air debate, Sister2Sister reported.
That of which Underwood later said left her dealing with PTSD and prompted a hiatus from the show and the inevitable exit for Osbourne.
Following the on-air beef, former show co-hosts came out, guns ablaze, and accused Osbourne of using racist and homophobic commentary on set in the past, allegations Osbourne has adamantly denied.
However, Underwood wasn’t the only colleague accusing Osbourne of misdeeds. Apparently, the woman had been a menace on set for everyone.
Former co-host Leah Remini claimed Osbourne once called Julie Chen, a Chinese-American, a “wonton” behind the scenes, and referred to Sara Gilbert, a lesbian, as a “P***y licker.”
Ex-co-host Holly Robinson Peete accused Osbourne of claiming that she was “too ghetto” to be part of the program.
